Holder of a PhD from the University of Rennes I, in Biology Sciences & Plant Pathology (1993), I was recruited at Bordeaux Sciences Agro in 1994 as Associate Professor of Phytopathology. My teaching activities focus on phytopathology, plant epidemiology and the health of growing plants in relation with agroecology. I teach at Bachelor and Master level at Bordeaux Sciences Agro and at the University of Bordeaux.
I carry out research on the understanding of the epidemiological processes of plant diseases. Since 2003, I develop research on grapevine trunk diseases in order to better understand the cultural and environmental factors related to the development of these diseases. I analyze their development at different scales of time and space to better understand the underlying processes. I develop mathematical models through collaboration with mathematicians and statisticians. My current areas of research concern the study of the relationships between the development of these diseases, their nuisibility and climate change.
